Dave Hingsburger, Rolling Around In My Head - March 5, 2012
A comment on yesterday’s “The Airport Analogy” post included a link to another disability analogy I really like. Dave Hingsburger suggests trying to write a coherent paragraph without using the letter “e”. It is a good approximation of the mental intensity required to live with physical or mental disabilities. I particularly like this line.
"Disability isn't about not having a cut curb ... well it is but it isn't ... it's about figuring out what to do about the fact that there isn't a cut curb.”
I really think that a good analogy for disability is a precious thing. We should be collecting them.
Disability life, ideas, identity, culture, commentary, and politics.
